Local Profiles

Preventing and reducing drug and alcohol related harm is a national policy priority, with alcohol and drug use having health, social and economic consequences borne by individuals, families, and the wider community.

The aim of these short profiles is to provide information for local partnerships that contributes to a better understanding of the impact of alcohol and drugs on local communities and to reduce and prevent inequality and harm.
